I HAD the good fortune to see an SR-71 Blackbird for real when I visited the USS Intrepid Air and Space museum in New York.

However, what I didn’t get to see was the business end of the cockpit. Check this out.

For the record, this bad boy could get you from London to New York in under two hours and saw active service for 25 years up to 1990.

It looked fast sitting on the Intrepid’s deck. God knows what it was like when it was tearing a hole in the sky.

Thanks to Silodrome for the heads up.
